Summer Shower

The hot workdays of the past week were relieved by a very special on-site amenity. An outdoor shower surround that I built last year was recently outfitted with hot and cold running water. After wrestling large slabs into a set of front steps for my customer I was able to strip down and rinse off before heading home at the end of the day.

Having the fresh supply of stone at my disposal, from last week’s harvesting, has been like getting a blood transfusion for the imagination. I can design with select pieces in mind. I knew when I saw the 6’x7’ slab in the jumble of stone that came off the hillside in Townshend that it was destined for this project in Dummerston.
